  • Personal Narrative: A Boxer's Fracture

    I am not a boxer, but I got a boxer's fracture. A boxer's fracture is a fracture of one of the metacarpal bones in the hand. The fracture occurs when a person hits an immovable object with a closed fist. That is exactly what I did about one year ago. My ex boyfriend's collar bone was the point of contact. It was just a regular day at Calvary Baptist Academy. I thought it was atleast. As I was walking down the hallway, a friend stopped me to tell me that my ex boyfriend, Christian, had done something to my car. After I had gone to my locker, I walked to the parking lot. When I got to my car, I did not notice anything until right before I walked away. He had placed a disassembled breakfast sandwich on the roof of my bright red Ford Mustang.…

  • Case Study: Horseshoe Crab

    crystalline and amorphous regions. The mechanical properties are highly antistrophic, and have great stiffness in the axial regions. The density of wood is also strong as well. This assists with its strong fracture toughness. Unfortunately wood is easily cracked in the parallel region, but not the perpendicular…

  • Multi Stage Fracturing Research Paper

    Multi-stage fracturing is an advanced drilling technology that enhances the production capabilities through maximizing the contact area of unconventional wells with the reservoir production zones. During the fracturing process, a special fluid (primarily a mixture of sand and water) is blown out at a high pressure into the shale rock formation creating channels through which hydrocarbons can easily migrate to the well. Multi-stage fracturing is a combination of fracturing and plugging processes.…

  • Bamboo Essay

    replacing bone and mimicking their structure for, various applications. When looking at biological materials, to determine their effectiveness as a scaffold or sufficient structure for various other uses, often they are tested for their resistance to fracture. This is referred to as fracture propagation. Bamboo Bamboo is well known for its sufficient mechanical properties, and great flexibility. It also has great fracture toughness. Bamboo is considered to be a bio composite, meaning it…

  • Lab Analysis Of The 4PB Experiments

    ERRs Gc (i.e. interfacial fracture toughness) of the interface between Cu leadframe and EMC. They were determined by the FEM simulations using the three mentioned methods: VCCT, VCE and J-integral. The verification of simulations was performed using an analytical solution (eq. (6)). Based on the critical ERRs obtained from different specimens tested at different temperatures, the temperature dependence of the interfacial fracture toughness was investigated. The upper EMC layer of the sample was…

  • Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva Research Paper

    1. What is FOP? Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva is a rare genetic disease in which a person’s bones will begin to form into the muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints and connective tissues. Overtime the development will restrict a person’s movement. It has been described as turning a person into stone because their body is essentially encased by a second skeleton. 2. What are the initial symptoms? Symptoms of Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva, include: an infant being born with short,…

  • Spiral Fracture Research Paper

    Spiral fractures are the result of a rotating force. Most of these occur when a body is in motion and the affect part is groundly planted. Many of these accidents occur during sports. There is a speific kind of fall for each way a person can fall on a planted foot. One of the most common for metatarsals when they roll under the foot is referred to as a ballerina fall. As bad as this sounds most of these fractures are aligned and do not require any kind of surgery. Most are cleaned up by the body…

  • Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI)

    Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) is a genetic disorder that affects the formation of bones. The term Osteogenesis Imperfecta literally means imperfect bone formation. People with OI have bones that break easily, usually caused by a mild trauma or no cause at all. Multiple fractures are common with this disease since bones are weak. Although, in severe cases fracture of bones can occur before birth. This disease is caused by defective connective tissue and the lack of Type One Collagen. There are…

  • Bicycle Injury Essay

    Where is David? Common Cycling Injuries Are there common cycling injuries? "My right knee just started hurting about 4 days ago. I am having sharp pains on the lateral side of my knee. I had to bike the last couple days with just my left leg, which (wasn't a good thing)! Hopefully it will be better tomorrow!" David Shirley, taking a few days off in Portland, Oregon. Asking the question implies the answer; of course cycling has its list of common injuries, which are amplified when a cyclist…
